Congratulations on purchasing a Xootr scooter. If you still haven’t purchased one, SHAME ON YOU! Either way you’re going to enjoy the stylish, but tough industrial design. Yes, the Xootr scooter is very strong and tough. Strong enough to hold up to 800 lbs, making it the best scooter for heavier adults. You’ll also love the wide deck that can accommodate adult feet, and the fast rolling wheels that feel like they defy gravity. There’s also a front and back brake, making the Xootr much safer and controllable during emergency stops. You’re going to love the Xootr scooter, but there’s only one thing left for you to do. You have to learn how to fold a Xootr scooter, which we’ll show you how to do.
The Xootr kick scooter is designed to be the perfect fold and go scooter
Here’s how you unfold and fold, then GO!
- Open the “quick release” lever on the steering column. Extend the handlebar to the desired height. Close the “quick release” lever to lock the handlebar in place.
- Turn the scooter upside down (or at least angle it in the upside-down direction) in order to relieve the pressure on the latch mechanism. Be sure the brake cable is not hooked under the (optional) fender brake, which could prevent unfolding.
- Depress the black button located on the underside of the scooter near the main pivot to release the QuickClick™ latch.
- Unfold the scooter and listen for the click sound indicating the latch is secured in the riding position.
- With the scooter on the ground, depress the QuickClick™ latch button with your thumb or toe. You may need to press the handlebar forward a little bit to relieve the pressure on the latch and allow you to depress the button.
- Fold the scooter, paying careful attention that the front wheel is perfectly straight so that it can nest properly within the opening in the frame near the pivot. If you sense resistance to folding, the front wheel is probably not straight and therefore bumping up against the frame.
- Optional: Open the “quick release” lever on the steering column. Lower the handlebar into the steering column. Close the “quick release” lever to lock the handlebar in place.
If you have an old-style “pin” latch, instructions are in this legacy user manual.
